Card not accepted?

Obviously the first check to make if your card is not being accepted is that you are entering the precise information from your card.

Here are a few tips about things that often cause people problems:

  • Are you making sure you do not leave any spaces between your card numbers (eg '1234567812345678' and not '1234 5678 1234 5678')?

  • Is the Payment Name exactly as on the card (eg 'James Smith' instead of 'Mr J H Smith'? If there are two fields for your name the latter form would require 'Mr J H' in the first field and 'Smith' in the second field.

  • Is the address exactly the same as your billing address?

  • If you're not sure about the 'Security Code' it is the last 3 digits at the end of the number on the reverse of the card. This is usually in the following format: [5778]123: which would give the security code as '123'.
